Victorian Santa

We're going Victorian over at Totally PaperCrafts this week. I chose this Santa image off of a piece of paper in my Bo Bunny Father Christmas collection.  I usually like to use stamps or digitals so I can play with my Copics, but this Santa is Sooo Victorian I had to pop him on my card.  I did enhance his color a bit with my Copics.  I gave him some blue eyes and a little more blush on the cheeks.  I sparkled him up with a Sakura Jelly Roll Clear Star Jelly Roll Pen.

One more Christmas card finished.  How are you doing on yours?  Need one more, just pick up something Victorian and wave your magic designer's wand over it and wallah - A Christmas Card. (Sorry, too much Harry Potter on the brain)  Now click right here and enter it in the Totally PaperCrafts Victorian challenge.  Keep on reading and you will see what wonderful prizes just might be in it for you.
